We have expertise in both learning design and educational technology tools to enhance your module and teaching activities.

Through working together, our team of experts will help ensure a seamless progression from curriculum review to pedagogy redesign. We aim to understand your course in full. Then we discuss ideas on how best you can redesign teaching activities within your course.

We can then provide you with support to:

  • Design your own activities.
  • Conduct ABC workshops (or other pedagogical workshops or technical training sessions)
  • Take advantage of our digital media team and exclusive access to the Digital Media Lab (DML) at the South Kensington Campus
  • Agree evaluation and feedback approaches with our educational analyst

Our Design team provides the hands-on support and guidance you need to rethink and redesign the modules and programmes you currently teach and lead.

Please visit our dedicated learning design SharePoint pages for teaching staff which has more information on timeframes and examples of work already created by The Engineering Ed Tech Lab.

Further information is also available on our digital media and assessment pages.

Module level design

We work alongside individual academics who may be starting a new course or are looking to review their previous delivery:

  • Linking learning design theory to create an effective online student experience
  • Mapping assessments and activities to learning outcomes and supporting the choice of correct Ed Tech tools
  • Discussing existing content and where digital media enhancement, content and activities (where applicable) meet the needs of your cohort
  • Ensuring that accessibility and inclusivity standards are maintained
  • Deploying high standards of quality assurance for all designs and assessments
  • Taking advantage of evaluation and feedback
